Another bloody serious comedy from BOP, makers of the hilarious My
Left Right Foot – The Musical.
The near future.
Chris never wanted to end up here. She’s a proud woman and hates asking for help but when her condition deteriorated she had no choice but to claim benefits.
Ralph believes in the new system. He knows it can work for Chris. He’s here today, in her home, to assess her, to prove she is fit and capable of working.
Can Chris persuade him to change his mind? And, if not, how far is she willing to go to save herself?
